FA Cup: Chelsea Spurn Chances As Manchester City Seal Final Spot - In Pics

Bernardo Silva fired Manchester City into the FA Cup final after they beat Chelsea 1-0 at Wembley on Saturday. The Portuguese playmaker's 84th-minute goal ensured City maintained its pursuit of back-to-back domestic doubles in the week when its Champions League defense was ended by Real Madrid. Kevin De Bruyne's cross from the left was converted by Silva at the far post via a deflection from Chelsea defender Marc Cucurella. The Blues were guilty of many guilt-edged chances but Nicolas Jackson failed to convert any. This was the second time at Wembley that the Blues have failed to win in a season with the League Cup defeat at the hands of Liverpool early this year. Manchester United meets Coventry in the other semifinal on Sunday. The final is on May 25.
